11:15 pm
a loved. one only already from the point of view from of mossad having very being very in huge shortage of assets in their country she was perfect and they had no one else. of course this was coming from from lack of other resources because to recruit a jew living in his own city under is own identity it means huge risk for him and he's suspected just by being a jew it's not entirely clear how call him became a spy one theory is she always wanted to be involved in building israel another but she was recruited in jerusalem and her marriage to kris was a front either way her husband's beirut shop gave her the chance to meet travelling merchants who talked about fighters training on lebanon southern border the story

11:18 pm
a man from the south called lutheran hope the love that was to become a key figure in her spy network. he told her that israeli security wanted to meet her in a small town on the lebanon palestine border it was the first time sure had crossed the border since her marriage in her memoirs she later roads. i travelled by jeep from beirut to the helium area i stayed in new says house until late at night his men were monitoring border patrols to secure my journey. and. let me just. set the second had. always had them and higher. mara be is nick was. gonna this nigger muscles were gonna yet lope be a moment here. we are at. a law millennia and a thought i knew that of the other the other the nurse had let alone many of them
11:19 pm
are done more homely. let's go back to the fifty's what horse is really thinking about. the people who are coming to the border the people are coming to make some sabotage that i can think of that was important to the israeli intelligence but the most important thing was that she was there. that it was them that was the big success the big success they did not the information that she was she gave but that she was there and the people from here from the army could come to the prime minister to bangor yawn and said we have spies in the art of levon and. among those who helped was a french jew called george will come. she met him at a reception in one of beirut's palatial homes.

11:21 pm
some of them were given most machines at the beginning very very simple using very simple code and later on with burst transmitters that. narrow down the time needed for the actual transmission of the message surely gradually enlarged her spy and support network arabs rejected the idea of jewish immigration into palestine and after the second world war the british continued to restrict entry. and played a key role in alya that the secret smuggling of jews through lebanon into palestine i remember the day i accompanied syrian jewish families across the border i was seven months pregnant and had to do the journey with them on foot. i walked for hours when i met the agents they were surprised to see my big belly and didn't hide their at me ration for. a.
